Creature - Goblin Rigger

Other Rigger creatures you control get +1/+0 and have haste.
If a Rigger you control would assemble a Contraption, it assembles two Contraptions instead.

3/3

Umm, yeah. So, what the hell is the point of this card?? I could see some potential for new ability or something if it was in one of the new sets, but future sight is a few sets back. So, someone enlighten me... Even the flavor text shows mystery. Seems like a joke.

yeah, and I couldn't find any other place for it, really. I sent an ask wizards about the card. Hopefully they'll answer it and we'll be able to settle this. They've answered a question of mine before, so its not too improbable.

the fact that they have already answered one of your questions makes it less likely that they will answer another.

This card is for all intensive purposes a joke, along with most of future sight. in related news, wizards said they will not be printing a 3rd joke set because FS is already out.

For those wondering what a contraption is, it was going to be just a total joke but i have heard from a friend that works with wizards and talks to MaRo a bit that it might be a new type of enchantment

Yeah, Shatta, so I don't know what the hell you are talking about, but it doesn't make sense at all. A contraption is definately not a new type of enchantment. It says on gatherer that a contraption is a new type of artifact and there are currently none. And there is currently no meaning of assemble in Magic. I think i've cleared it up tho. There are many articles on Wizards that talk about the card and it originally being a joke.
